Create kernel.debug.noheader by default on ARM
AcceptedPublic

Summary
It is convenient to have a kernel without header build along with normal one. This
allows any debugger to easily understand kernel *.elf images.
If normal kernel.debug is used, all symbols are moved by an offset
of 0x100 (header size) what makes the gdb/kgdb hard to use.

Why are you using kernel.bin and not loading the kernel with loader?

I don't understand how is your question related to this change. Especially that I do use loader...

If you're not using kernel.bin then we have a different problem, where this is not the correct fix. If kernel.debug doesn't line up with kernel then that should be fixed, not by adding a new debug kernel.
